What do you do when you run out of lettuce but want a salad? You get creative.
I opened up the fridge and found a bag of shaved Brussels Sprouts, I found them in the refrigerated section of Wegmans I decided to try a roasted salad.
Using my 4 quart Xtrema oblong baker I placed the raw shaved Brussels Sprouts into the baking dish. I sprayed a little cooking spray and sprinkled this on top.
Toss the Brussels Sprouts to make sure each one is coated evenly with seasoning. You can substitute any seasoning you like I imagine Dill would be nice to try. Here’s what it looked like before it went into the oven.
I set the oven to 400 degrees and placed the Brussels Sprouts into the oven. Please check them every 5 minutes because they brown fast and you don’t want burnt Brussels Sprouts do you?
After about 12 to 15 minutes this is what it looks like.
This is a very easy side dish and since the shaved Brussels Sprouts were purchased ready to use all I had to do was cut open the bag and pour the Brussels out into my Xtrema oblong baker!
However I did not want to just leave these beautiful Brussels Sprouts as a side dish. I felt they needed to be dressed up for a salad. I added pink grapefruit, and a handful of crushed pecans. It was so different because the salad was warm from the Brussels Sprouts yet some bites were cool to taste because of the cold grapefruit. Here is the finished dish:
